I know, I am super late to the party to beautify and putting up extra protection to my first generation Pebble smartwatch. It is basically because there has been no information or promotion over here in the country I am living in, nor could I find it introduced on the Pebble Hong Kong site (which the retailers only tells you what you can buy there and how much you can pay for the courses).
I had been searching for a permanent, or a reliable solution on B2C retailers in Hong Kong and China but I could not find anything good. Either the cheap screen protector does not fit, or it will ruin the display like having a fog over the screen. Until a day I browse on pebble subreddit, I found someone talking about GadgetWraps. So there you go.
I immediately head over to GadgetWraps website and started looking at what they offer and which pattern I like. There are just tons of options to choose from. Eventually I ordered 2 sets with different patterns. The price is affordable and I think it is value for money, which is just $5 for a set. Placing order and payment process are painless.
For shipping, I believe it was $1.99 for Standard USPS international shipping. I was expecting 2 weeks from US to HK but it took only 6 days to arrive since I placed the order. That’s quite impressive too.
Before I get my shipment, I sent over my Pebble to the official local retailer for refurbishment on the screen as I did have a few minor scratches on it. It is free of charge because my premium membership has yet expired. So this provides my Pebble with excellent condition again for having GadgetWraps skin on it, as if it is brand new.
Upon receiving the shipment, what’s inside this standard package included the custom skin of your choice(s), 2 screen protectors (this is probably concerning first time users), a card about installation and support, and a color printed invoice/packing list.
I followed the video instruction on how to apply the skin and screen protector. It is straight forward and painless if you follow step by step. But one point I want to stress on is that: it is better to use the small plastic pad that comes with phone screen protectors installation kit, instead of the cardboard shown in the video (i.e. the color GadgetWraps card shipped with your order), to squeeze out the air bubbles and water between the protector and the screen. But make sure you do it gently or you any damage the protector easily. Additionally, I attach one of the how-to video that I referenced to on applying the skin and screen protector.
Notably, I received hand-written appreciation for the purchase from GadgetWraps. This gives me extremely good impression and experience with them.
Overall, I feel very satisfied with the product quality and service. I don’t know how many of you Pebble owners use GadgetWraps to protect the screen or simply add a skin to the single bezel color. But for those who don’t know, I highly recommend you check out their official site, pick a few you like and have the order shipped to your home within days. By any chance you ordered one, I hope you like it and be sure to take a vote or leave a comment below!
